Change - Poem by AHO Speaks


It is an important and crucial part of life itself if we are to survive
We would be denied our beginning and not ever be alive
Our sense's would be denied their connections; our mind to be deprived

No questions to be asked nor answers to find
A species that could only hold hands, as the blind leading the blind
The weather to be the same and our calendar of days, not well defined.

No one would laugh and certainly no one would cry
In the land of no change; there is not a single reason to be born or die
Deprived of a body; mind and soul; we could never find out why.

Not to age for there would not be many of us
The mind not here so there is no difference or at least not much
No sin, judgement, or penalty; nor a God; in whom we trust.

Change provides the wind and the rain and allows us to grow
Only moments to reflect on the feelings that we know
No hidden meanings or discenrment, about words of harvest and sow.

Not to have a mind would be as living in a black hole or an abyss
To forever hear in silence thoughout eternity; why me; why this?
Never to experience human touch, laughter, or a babies kiss.

Denied of change is to be void of difference and everything is the same
The grand experiment will be over and humanity no longer have a claim
Our soul returns to its source; and there is no purpose; to have a brain.
